Things to do at the Parc

The complete english version will be available soon.

Le parc Jean-Drapeau est l'hôte de ruches d'abeilles pour une deuxième année. L'équipe du Parc vous invite à en apprendre davantage sur ce projet innovant à l'occasion d'une activité d'introduction à l'apiculture, où un expert vous accompagnera dans la découverte des rouages des ruches.


Ateliers

Lors de cette expérience mémorable qui sollicitera certainement tous vos sens, vous pourrez toucher, sentir et goûter les différents produits de la ruche (cire, pollen, miel et propolis), voir les ouvrières à l'oeuvre et, avec un peu de chance, rencontrer la seule et l'unique, Sa Majesté, la reine.

  • Limite de 30 participants
  • Durée d'une heure

Schedule

Workshops will be offered during the next summer season. See you next year!

To make it easier to get around, here is the exact location of the workshops at Parc Jean-Drapeau posted on Google Maps.

Jean-Drapeau Subway Station

The Jean-Drapeau subway station is located on Île Sainte-Hélène, in the heart of Parc Jean-Drapeau. To get to the Parc easily and quickly, the subway is still the best way to go!

River shuttle

During the summer season, Parc Jean-Drapeau visitors can use the river shuttle as a means of transportation, from the Vieux-Port de Montréal (Jacques-Cartier pier) and the city of Longueuil.

Users can also bring along their bikes and they have access to a network of cycling paths at each stop.

STM shuttle

Two STM shuttles provide a connection between the Jean-Drapeau subway station and various attractions:
